In 1867, one of the leaders of the parliamentary opposition to Napoleon, Jules Ferry, derided Haussmann`s accounting practices as Haussmann`s Les Comptes fantastiques, a play on words based on Offenbach`s then-popular operetta “Les Contes d`Hoffman.”  In the autumn of 1867, the bond program was classified by the Court of Auditors as an official debt and not as a “deferral of payment”, as Haussmann claimed. This made the coupon system illegal, as the city of Paris had not obtained approval from the Legislative Assembly before borrowing. The city was forced to renegotiate with Crédit Foncier to convert the bonds into regular debt. Two separate agreements have been concluded with Crédit Foncier; The city agreed to repay a total of 465 million Swiss francs over 40 and 39 years.  Debates in the Legislative Assembly on the approval of these new agreements lasted 11 sessions, with critics attacking Haussmann`s loans, dubious financing mechanisms, and the governance structure of the city of Paris.  The result was a new law passed on April 18, 1868, giving the Legislative Assembly control over the city`s finances.

The underground labyrinth built by Haussmann also provided gas for heating and light to illuminate Paris. At the beginning of the Second Empire, gas was supplied by six different private companies. Haussmann forced them to merge into a single company, the Compagnie parisienne d`éclairage et de chauffage par le gaz, with the right to supply Parisians with gas for fifty years. Gas consumption tripled between 1855 and 1859. In 1850, there were only 9000 gas lamps in Paris; In 1867, the Paris Opera and four other major theatres alone had fifteen thousand gas lamps. Almost all new residential buildings in Paris had gas lamps in courtyards and stairwells; The monuments and public buildings of Paris, the arcades of the rue de Rivoli and the squares, boulevards and streets were lit by gas lamps at night. For the first time, Paris was the City of Light.  To thank Haussmann for his work, Napoleon III proposed in 1857 that Haussmann be appointed a member of the French Senate and that he receive an honorary title, as he had done for some of his generals. Haussmann applied for the title of baron, which, as he says in his memoirs, had been the title of his maternal grandfather, Georges Frédéric, Baron Dentzel, general under the first Napoleon, of whom Haussmann was the only surviving male descendant.
  According to his memoirs, he joked that he could consider the title aqueduct (a play on the French words for “duc” and “aqueduc”), but that there was no such title. However, this use of the baron is not officially authorized, and he remains legally Monsieur Haussmann.
